What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About East Central City Columbia

I like that there are a lot of shopping and dining options. I like to explore the bars and food nearby

My neighborhood is unique because of it's very small size, yet close to Downtown,Forest Acres, Five Points as well as The Vista, along with Shopping in Stores and Trying Different Restaurants with/without my husband.

I like how it is smaller than most and is safe for families. It is also nice because it is quiet and close to grocery stores.
